IT ALL STARTS WITH KNOWING YOUR LEVEL OF RISK

Welcome to the Diabetes NZ free awareness tool that will help increase your understanding of the risk factors of having or developing type 2 diabetes.

Everyone is at risk of developing diabetes and for some people the risk is greater than others. Awareness of your level of risk is a good starting point to know if you need to visit your health professional for the appropriate diabetes testing and to begin accessing the help and support you might need.

Just answer the quick questions below and you will receive a score which will help you know your risk level for diabetes and next steps.
